at the last minute…st. patrick’s day marshmallows

For everyone out there who doesn’t have extra hours to make St. Patrick’s Day decorated cookies (CLICK HERE if you do), then here’s a treat that takes mere seconds to make: St. Patty’s marshmallows.

for st. patty’s marshmallows you will need:*

green edible marker
green sanding sugar or sprinkles
cup of water
lollipop sticks

*You can find green food writers in the craft store, though I use Americolor Gourmet Writers. Find the sprinkles (go for sanding sugar or very fine sprinkles) and the lollipop sticks in the craft store.

what to do:
For shamrocks, simply draw a shamrock and insert stick, if desired. For glittery marshmallows, insert a lollipop stick into a marshmallow. Quickly submerge the marshmallow in a cup of water. Immediately sprinkle sanding sugar or sprinkles over marshmallow to completely coat. Tap off excess and set aside to dry.
